I was never much of a movie buff, until recently.
The idea of going to the cinema and paying a small fortune to do so never really appealed to me and I would only ever go on special occasions or when there was a film out I knew beyond doubt I would love – there would be films I quite liked the look of and I would tell myself I’d wait until it came out on DVD or to rent, but then never get round to it.
I recently started streaming movies online, something I had never really considered despite running a streaming TV site myself!
What impresses me about doing so is the quality of the videos available – years ago when I probably first attempted to watch a movie online they were all ‘cam’ copies where you’d get people walking in front of the screen or hear them coughing. Now they are all in super high definition DivX quality.
The advantage of being very late to jump on the movie watching bandwagon is that I have a lot of classic and widely loves movies to catch up on. In the last few months alone I have watched the first few Lord of the Rings. I have also seen some great movies that I would have never in a million years paid to go and see as they didn’t sound like my cup of tea – such as Kick Ass and Ghost Town. Next on my ‘to watch’ list are The Social Network and Avatar.
Do you have any recommendations?
